Just another mass murder in Afghanistan… Yesterday ten members of a medical group were shot in cold blood by Muslim fanatics in Afghanistan. Six of them were from the USA, one from Germany, and one from Great Britain. Two Afghani interpreters were also killed.
The organization, which sent them there (International Assistance Mission) stated that their task was to provide eye treatment to people in remote villages. The Taliban, who took responsibility for the murders, claimed that they killed them because they were “spying for the Americans” and “preaching Christianity.” Continue reading
It has been reported that starting from September thousands of school children in the Harrow area of London will be forced to eat only halal meat at school. That despite of the protests of many parents…
Supposedly, this is one of the most diverse ethnically communities in Great Britain. The sources state that the population is just under 50% Christian, 20% Hindu, 7% Muslim, and 6% Jewish. Continue reading
Recently Toronto Star ran a story about the labour conditions in Toronto’s Chinatown. Their main example was a woman, who came from China in 2006. Apparently, she didn’t start work until this year, because she was raising two young children. She didn’t speak any English, so her only option was working in Chinatown.

The sharia law has taken another step forward in Canada. The most appalling thing is that this time it has been “applied” by healthcare professionals.

You can read the full story here. What added insult to the injury was the fact that the mother was also forced to pay $750 for using the new room. Continue reading
The Toronto mayoral race is heating up. There are too many contenders and it is still not easy to pick the best one.
Recently I met Joe Pantalone at a charity fundraiser. I knew that he was a city councillor, but I wasn’t aware that he was running for mayor. I asked him which political party he represents. He answered that he was an NDP sympathizer, but as a candidate he was above all political parties.

It was reported three days ago that most of the oil spilled in the Mexican Gulf after the BP disaster miraculously disappeared. Actually, it wasn’t a miracle. Everything happened for perfectly natural reasons.
For starters, there were over 4,000 ships that were involved in the skimming operations, trying to collect as much oil as possible. However, they were not the major contributors to the solution. Continue reading
